Daniel Radcliffe is returning to Broadway.
The Harry Potter actor - who made his New York theatre debut in a 2008 production of Equus - will join the rest of the London cast of The Cripple of Inishmaan when it transfers to the US on 20 April for a three-month run.
The play, which was a sell-out when it ran in the West End last summer, follows disabled teenager Billy's attempt to become a movie star when a Hollywood production is filmed on an island near his Irish home in the 1930s. In a similar experiment to its British run, The Michael Grandage Company will sell 10,000 tickets for the production at just $27, considerably less than the average price for a Broadway show.
Woman in Black star Daniel previously spoke of how pleased he was with his Irish accent in the production. "Learning the accent was, is, an ongoing thing. I'm pleased with it to be honest and I think it's in a really good place. The rest of the cast most of whom are Irish seem pretty happy with it. So I am pleased with it. It's definitely going to be something that gets better and better and better the more I do it. It's been fun and it's a fun accent to talk in - the stuff that wouldn't necessarily be funny in an English accent is for some reason just funnier in an Irish accent," he said.
Daniel Radcliffe wasn't interested in being cast in Fifty Shades of Grey.
The Harry Potter star had no desire to play male lead Christian Grey in the film adaptation of E.L James' erotic novel and is pretty sure film fans didn't want him over Charlie Hunnam either, who has been cast in the role.
Speaking at the Toronto International Film Festival, he told MTV News, "I literally had someone say to me for the first time today, 'The world's in uproar you're not playing Christian Grey.' And I'm like, 'If this is uproar, it's inaudible.'"
The 23-year-old actor doesn't think he would have been able to convincingly portray the BDSM obsessed businessman character and it would have only hurt his career if he'd been cast. "I have to say, no offense to anybody, I'm sure they're going to do a great job on the movie, but it's not something that I think of would have been a good next step for me," he added.
Juno Temple says Daniel Radcliffe should be a stand up comedian.
The 24-year-old actress worked with the Harry Potter actor on indie movie Horns and revealed Daniel kept her entertained with his jokes after the director asked her to open a scene by laughing. "There was one take where there was quite a complicated shot and we had to keep redoing it to get the shot right. We had to open with me laughing and Daniel must have told me 20 to 25 jokes. It was insane. I didn't know somebody had that many jokes. It was genius. He's a stand-up comic," she told E! News.
While Juno will play Queen Elizabeth's sister, Princess Margaret, in Girls Night Out, the new movie about the sisters sneaking out of Buckingham Palace as teenagers, she admits she didn't follow coverage of the recent birth of Prince George, the future British king: "I'm happy for [Prince William and Duchess Catherine], but I'm not really good at following tabloid stuff. Anyone having a baby is a magic moment in their lives so it's very exciting but no, I'm not a royal fanatic."
Daniel Radcliffe wants to star in a remake of Back to the Future. The 22-year-old actor - who is best known for playing the title role in the Harry Potter franchise - would be keen to take on the role of Marty McFly if a new version was ever made.
Speaking about the film - which starred Michael J. Fox - Daniel told The Sun, "If there were a Back to the Future remake I would be in it. I fancy myself as a Michael J. Fox - sort of short and quite hyperactive. That sounds like me."
A Woman in Black follow-up is in development. Studio Hammer is teaming with Alliance Films and Cross Creek Pictures to work on the project, which will be called The Woman in Black: Angels of Death and will take place 40 years after the original movie.
Jon Croker - who worked as a story editor on the first film - will write the picture, with Roy Lee executively producing. It is not believed Daniel Radcliffe, who played the leading character in the first movie, will return as the story will focus on a couple who move into eerie Eel Marsh House four decades after the setting of the original. No director has yet been signed up either.
The Woman in Black has so far taken $120 million at the box office internationally, and marked the first major movie for Daniel following his career in the Harry Potter franchise. Speaking about his break away from playing the boy wizard previously, Daniel revealed his working from a young age made him protective over other youngsters on set:
Daniel Radcliffe believes the Harry Potter franchise has been a "double-edged sword."
The 22-year-old actor shot to fame playing the titular boy wizard in all seven movies and while he learned a lot from the films, he admits it was hard to see his acting shortcomings played out in public while he honed his craft. "It's only recently I've become aware of the problems people had with me in the films. And, you know, people are obviously entitled to their opinions. But we learn from our mistakes. You know, I'm at the age most actors would be when they've learned from their mistakes in private and done drama school for three years. It's a double-edged sword. I had the amazing privilege of working with these fantastic actors for 10 years and learning from them, but I also had - we all did - the slight curse of somebody seeing, basically, our acting exercises."
Daniel believes his acting has improved massively working on his new film The Woman In Black because he had learned to connect with his emotions: "The emotional stuff is the trickiest, absolutely. And that's why I feel I made some strides in this film because actually, for the first time, I felt able to really allow my own emotions to come out through the character. I know it sounds bizarre to say this now, but it was a fairly new experience for me, for whatever reason. I think I had a sense of it on the last Potter, but not before then."
UPDATE: Warner Bros. has pulled the footage.

We just got our first look at the movie poster for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 -- and, it’s totally awesome. The poster delivers a clear message to moviegoers: the eighth, and final, film installment will feature an epic battle between The Boy Who Lived and He Who Shall Not Be Named.
In the poster, Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) is smeared with blood, and Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) looks just plain mean. The film comes to theaters on July 15, so keep your wands at the ready.

Seven books, eight movies, ten years -- and it all came down to this. In the video above, you’ll see the last scene ever filmed for the epic Harry Potter film franchise, a bittersweet ending to a tale that’s still in the making on the big screen.
Fittingly, the last scene featured title star Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter and his co-stars Emma Watson (Hermione) and Rupert Grint (Ron). The scene was part of their escape from The Ministry of Magic, which we already saw in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part I.

Kids are All Right star Mia Wasikowska did more than all right in 2010.
Thanks to her breakout role in Alice in Wonderland, the actress with the hard-to-spell last name managed to land on one of Forbes’ year-end lists.
Mia tied with Johnny Depp for second place on the magazine’s "Hollywood's Highest-Grossing Actors" chart. Both Alice actors saw their respective film(s) ring up approximately $1.03 billion in total.
Leonardo DiCaprio – with help from Shutter Island and Inception – placed first with $1.1 billion.
